Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Shiner'

Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Shiner'
This is another John Richardson bred Hibiscus from a pod parent of 'Kylie Ritchie' and pollen parent of 'Herm Geller'. It is a huge flower and, unusually, there is a gap between the petals and an almost distinct separation of colour zones. The white streaks on the petal's pink zone increase the impact of the dark eye zone ...a real 'shiner' indeed.
I am currently out of stock of the variety.
